RAC shares song ft: Rivers Cuomo

RAC releases new single "I Still Wanna Know" featuring Rivers Cuomo

RAC will release his new album EGO on July 14 via Counter Records. The record follows the release of Anjos’ 2014 album Strangers. With this release, Anjos is re-directing RAC to songwriting which accounts for the record’s intimate but full-lunged tone, as heard on the records’ second single “I Still Wanna Know,” featuring vocals and a guitar solo from Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo as well as additional production by Classixx, that debuts today.

In support of the release Anjos has confirmed Fall tour dates across North America. Tickets go on sale this Friday. See below for complete tour details as well as additional dates globally.

Recorded between Anjos’ home studio in Portland and sessions in Los Angeles, EGO features collaborations with Cuomo, Rostam, MNDR, St. Lucia, KNA, Joywave among others. EGO is Anjos’ most ambitious, cohesive and personal work to date and chronicles his organic progression as an artist. “The word ‘ego’ can have a negative connotation, but I think of it as an exploration of self,” he explains. “The album is really me figuring out what I personally wanted; I felt free to do whatever.”

Born and raised in Portugal, Anjos studied piano and guitar in his teens and played in local bands. He moved to the U.S. to study music business at Greenville College in Illinois before settling in Portland, OR. Anjos founded RAC while in his college dorm and has since gained an audience creating remixes for Lana Del Rey, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ellie Goulding, Phoenix, Two Door Cinema Club, The Shins and label mates ODESZA.

RAC began releasing original content with his first song “Hollywood” via Green Label Sound in 2012. Anjos quickly proved himself as a songwriter with his debut album Strangers (2014), which contains the singles “Let Go,” featuring Bloc Party’s Kele & MNDR and “Cheap Sunglasses” featuring Matthew Koma. Anjos has made major festival appearances at Coachella, Electric Zoo, Bumbershoot and Lollapalooza.
